My eyes burned with fatigue, when suddenly, in all this
darkness, a brilliant light broke in. I
discovered the path to life itself.
( I see by your eyes, Captain Walton, that you would hear this
secret! No. The man who seeks a greater place than nature
directs, finds only grief.) I had found this power - how should I use
it? My imagination soared...I would
create a human being! Minute parts
hinder work, so I began a being of great size.
A new species would bless me as father - and, if I could animate cold

dead mother, covered in grave
worms. I started from my sleep...
My bed curtains opened...
...and I beheld the grinning
monster that I had created.
It stretched out its hand toward me. In motion, it was a thing not even Dante
could have imagined. I ran downstairs,
and paced the dark courtyard, fearing every sound.
